Budget roadside inn near the Hamptons and wineries

Long Island Budget Host Inn Riverhead sits at the "gateway to The Hamptons" and a handful of miles from the North Fork wine country. Rates are incredibly low for the area and include a morning cup of coffee. During the hot summer months, families can play in the outdoor pool or head to the sandy beaches of local state parks. Other favorite spots nearby are Splish Splash Water Park, voted the best water park in the northeast, and Atlantis Marine World aquarium. An on-site tennis court, barbeque and playground offer other afternoon pastimes. 

Highlights

  • Outdoor pool and sundeck
  • Tennis court, barbeque grill, picnic area and playground
  • Convenient to the Hamptons for at affordable room rates

Rooms

The 68 simple rooms are a bit of a throwback at Budget Host Inn Riverhead, with their patterned carpets and quilted bedspreads. Each offers a cable TV with HBO and a writing desk. Some rooms have a view of the outdoor pool. Non-smoking rooms are available as are rooms with kitchenettes.

Very Good Deal

The room itself was very basic--no extra towels, a lamp that didn't work, etc.--but it was clean and it was comfortable. What was excellent was the staff, especially the man at the front desk, who responded immediately to our needs, suggested excellent restaurants, gave us directions to where we wanted to go. Also impressive were the fresh bakery goods--croissants, homemade donuts, etc.--for breakfast. the pool was also nice. Although it was far from fancy, I would happily go there again.

The WORST hotel I have ever been in

Here are the major problems: 1. SAFETY: As a woman traveling solo, this room was unacceptable. The room had a ground floor window with NO LOCK ON THE WINDOW--completely broken, both the window latch and the screen, which was hanging halfway off the side of the building. No smoke detectors in the hotel. Plastic covers on lights burned and melted to the lights because they hadn't been removed. Vast majority of the hotel was boarded up. Drinking and open drug use on the premises. At least 20 drunks partying in the hallways and parking lot and in cars in the parking lot. Smell of marijuana from several rooms, likely heavier drug use going on, given the clientele of the hotel. Desk clerk refused to acknowledge it was a problem or resolve the situation. Parking lot poorly lit, parking in back of building adjacent to wooded area near drug users. 2. IN POOR CONDITION: Toilet completely inoperable (did not flush, leaking from the bottom), no smoke detectors, curtain stuffed into the window heating unit (window broken), bed linens in extremely poor condition--cigarette burns, tears, stains, ceiling in bathroom falling down with water stains on walls. 3. UNCLEAN: Dead bugs in the corners, toilet not cleaned, cobwebs in corners everywhere. Human feces smeared on the wall.

Good price, close to the Hamptons

My rating is based on a 2 star hotel/motel - We attended a wedding in Westhampton last weekend and needed a place to stay within our budget and close enough to drive after a wedding. It was a 15 minute drive to Westhampton and quiet location. The rooms and decor are rather old but clean. Our room had a TV, fridge, microwave, iron and blow dryer...standard room amenities. The pool was nice and clean - looked newly redone. The genteleman at the counter provided great customer service, allowing us to checkin in a little early. Overall, the hotel could use some updating but it provided a quiet, clean place to sleep within our budget.

Budget Host East End Riverhead

Reserved a non-smoking room - and got a smoking room. Room was fairly clean - everything worked. Grounds are nice, but rooms are just passable. I would only recommend this because it seems the best deal - or only availability trying to get near North Fork in August.

ok in a pinch

The hotel looked run down. Rooms were ok. Carpets need to be cleaned. Towels were dingy. Sheets were. Clean. And they had a nice pool. Soda machines were empty of water.

Just about adequate

The price is the best thing about this hotel. While the bed and bathroom were clean, the rest of it needs a dramatic facelift. The chair in the room had more stains than the actual fabric!!!

Budget Host East End Riverhead

Fairly easy to get to - adequate parking. Some minor repairs are needed (plumbing, locks). Bathroom was not cleaned well from previous occupants. Complimentary breakfast had good pastries - cereal, bowls, spoons would have been good.
